Sassicaia - Tenuta San Guido

The Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta produces wines at Tenuta San Guido, just inland from Bolgheri on the Tyrrhenian coast and has a very fine reputation. The Tenuta San Guido estate comprises the Sassicaia winery and vineyards, the only Italian DOC within a single estate, the Razza Dormello-Olgiata thoroughbred stud farm and the Padule di Bolgheri bird sanctuary.

The Sassicaia (‘place of many stones’) vineyards are planted in the hills at up to 350m above sea level, with a band rich in rocks and clay between 100 – 300m. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc fruit is hand-harvested, and following vinification the unfinished wine spends 24 months aging in French oak barriques followed by a few months in bottle prior to release. Initially made by the Mario Incisa della Rocchetta for the family’s private cellar, he was persuaded by family and friends to commercially release the wine, and the first public release of Sassicaia was in 1968. With help from Piero Antinori`s winemaker, Giacomo Tachis, viticulture and winemaking were further developed over the following years, and today Sassicaia enjoys an almost legendary status in the wine world. Sassicaia seems to do especially well in vintages that are less successful for the rest of Tuscany, and today it is one of the world’s finest expressions of Cabernet. It boasts extraordinary complexity, with texture, power, structure, finesse and longevity. Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta (pictured) is the president of Tenuta San Guido.

Vintage guide

A dry winter followed by a hot summer has certainly affected yields in 2022, but the quality looks excellent across the country. Small but perfectly formed seems to sum up the 2021 vintage here. Across most of the country the 2020 vintage is looking very good indeed with ripe fruit and lovely aromatics. A classic if not straight forward vintage 2019 has delivered some excellent wines but in smaller quantity. Overall, the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The Northeast, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields were a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and a later heatwave nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ reduced yields, but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country.
